COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - Winter 2009
A reincarnation of a beer brewed many years ago at Shepherd Neame - rich in aroma and flavour. A malty, fruity palate leads to the mellow, rounded bitterness of the finish in alcohol warming. A great beer for the colder November evenings. Available throughout November

On tap somewhere in London! Clear dark brown beer. Typical Shep dryness but not too much. Mild toffee caramel malt and the mild hops present a little sweet pineapple. Finishes dry and with more of the same. Not bad at all, one of the better Sheps.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the Duke of York, Southwark, 3rd Dec 09. Bright copper colour with a diminishing white head. Alcohol and toffee aroma. Sweet malty taste with medium mouthfeel (lighter than say, Youngs Winter Warmer). Decent for a mjaor brewery but too bland to be a classic. Reasonable balance and bitterness at the finish.
